Moving into the second half of the year, investors may be scrutinizing their stock portfolios to see what has gone right and what has gone wrong in the first half. Maybe the first half of the year didn’t provide the returns that were anticipated. Maybe returns exceeded expectations. Whatever the case, investors will most likely be looking to either turn the ship around or keep charging forward. Occasionally, new investors will have some bad initial stock market experiences and accumulate losses right out of the gate. This can sometimes prevent them from staying in the market. Although stock picking might seem easy to those that have been in the mix for a long time, it may seem extremely difficult for the novice. Staying disciplined and focused can be a big asset to individual investors.
